Chatsworth, CA, September 01, 2015 - 1105 Media's Enterprise Computing Group – the publishers of MSDN and Redmond magazines - has announced that Visual Studio Live! will return as part of Live! 360, taking place November 16 – 20, 2015 at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando, FL, as one of five co-located events that comprise the conference.
